GridDynamicLayout is an additional layout for Grid that attempts to dynamically sort your raid :


  • Four groups (tanks / healers / melee DPS / ranged DPS) + pets + "trash" group + warlock / hunter / DK pets
  • Adaptative (ooc) groups using talent detection to assign raid roles.
  • For each group you can define a list of members that will be forced into those groups
  • Trash group allows you to configure how to display AFK, Offline or people who are simply not in your vicinity

    Doesn't work with Phanx's changes to Grid anymore.

    Thanks for the update. Awesome move using LibGroupTalents now. However, the options for how to deal with "Trash Players" (Offline/AFK) no longer function!

    Is there anyway to make the layout more compact? Instead of making a new column for each group, continue from the last group anchor so there are no empty spots. Is this possible? Thanks in advance.

    How can I get this to work reliably? When I set for example the 10 player raid layout to dynamic it always switches back after a few seconds or at combat start. What am I missing? Version is 1.4.3 from Curse.

    Does it support Grid2?

    How do you set it so it automatically updates whenever someone joins and leaves the raid?

    I've been having the same issues as Northern49. Causes grid to not display most people at all. Bugsack does not seem to be giving me any errors either. I'm not entirely certain what is happening, but from my minimal testing 2 things seem to be going on.

    1) Grid's layout is not updated - unless I switch to some other layout, and then set it back to Dynamic Layout. 2) If Dynamic Layout can't tell where to put them, they don't show up at all!

    Example 1: If I leave Righteous Fury off and set it to Dynamic layout it doesn't display me. If I then turn on RF, set it 5 man, set it back to Dynamic - poof I appear in the tank party.

    Example 2: I was in a group and the only person it would show at all was the shaman(enhancement). We had a priest(holy) and paladin(protection) as well. We were going to try and do an instance, but never found more people. We may have been in different zones - sorry I cannot be specific about that, since I was just messing around doing stuff and chatting with them while waiting for more until we called it.

    For reference, I tried this without checking the option to put afk or out of zone people into the "trash". (What does that do anyways? - Hide them entirely, or put them into a party somewhere you can still see, but can know they are not around.)

    I also didn't manually try setting any players to a specific role - as I had checked the option to automatically discover a players role.

    Versions: Grid-1.30000.2009021101, GridManaBars-v0.87, GridDynamicLayout-v1.4

    Using this addon. I set up all layouts to Dynamic, but when I do I get no health bars of any players what so ever, just a long empty skinny bar. How do I get it to display and sort by spec?

    Using Grid the latest releases of Grid (1.30000.2009021101) and GridDynamicLayout (v1.4) my raid frames weren't updating at all. I was getting five groups of five people with no role specific sorting.

    I tried multiple times to set the raid layout back to Dynamic or changing it to something else and back.
